Slash critical table:

This table lists the critical messaging caused by the slash damage type. Attempts at slashing are generally made with long, sharpened blades that typically can also be used to puncture and/or crush. Injuries of this type are most often caused by (AS) based weapon attacks. The damage values (Hitpoints) in this table represent attacks in this category.

In addition to weapon attacks, slash criticals may also be caused by certain spells, natural creature attacks, and environmental hazards.

Note: Damage from non-weapon attacks, especially CS attacks, will often be different than those listed in this table, but the messaging, status effects and injury levels will be the same.
